Personal protective equipment

Products certification, CE » Conformity assessment (CE)

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is subject to compulsory conformity assessment with regard to safety before marketing in the Czech Republic. Basic requirements for PPE are defined in Czech Government Regulation no 21/2003 Coll., laying down technical requirements for personal protective equipment, in the wording of Council Directive 89/686/EEC. According to the risk analysis PPE are divided into 3 categories with the prescribed methods of EC conformity assessment. Categories with higher risk levels (categories 2 and 3) require compulsory presence of an authorised person (notified body). In the case of simple types (category 1) the manufacturer may perform the EC conformity assessment itself without presence of the authorised person. All PPE must bear the CE mark and the manufacturer or its authorised representative issues the EC conformity statement.
